What is Caviar?
Caviar is a luxurious delicacy made from the eggs of various species of fish, most commonly sturgeon. The eggs are salt-cured to develop their distinct, slightly salty flavour, making them a popular choice as an hors d’oeuvre. While caviar can be expensive, it’s considered a worthy splurge for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. If you are seeking the perfect pairing for caviar, look no further. A glass of bubbly Champagne or another sparkling wine creates a delightful contrast in taste and elevates the overall dining experience.
To create this recipe we wanted to source a locally produced brand. Exmoor Caviar is the first British farmed caviar, produced in the foothills of Exmoor National Park. This unique caviar is made from the eggs of the Baerii sturgeon and is known for its high quality, and unique taste, thanks to the addition of cornish sea salt. It is a sought after delicacy and is used by chefs on menus throughout London.
What is Truffle?
Truffles are a highly prized ingredient known for their strong, earthy, and savoury “umami” flavour. When used sparingly, truffles can elevate the flavour of dishes like eggs, butter, potatoes and cheese. And how do you maximise the flavour? Truffles are typically shaved over dishes just before serving. Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a beginner, truffles add a touch of luxury to any dish, and a little goes a long way.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this gluten-free?
This dish is already gluten-free! Enjoy!.
Can I make this vegan?
Absolutely! Opt for the truffle option and use a plant-based alternative to replace the butter, and try nutritional yeast instead of parmesan to get that cheesy flavour.
What potato should I use?
The type of potato you choose is important here. Pick a floury type suitable for roasting. Waxy varieties will not crisp, and go tough. We used Maris Piper in this recipe, widely available in the UK. Ask your supermarket if you need assistance with the best potato to use locally outside the UK.
Do I have to use a muffin tray?
You don’t have to, but we highly suggest it. The potatoes will nestle in the butter, cheese, and thyme, infusing the potatoes with their flavours. And bonus – it gets the edges extra crisp. If you don’t have a muffin tray and want to freestyle it, then use toothpicks to keep the potatoes all together and baste often with oil.
